A bit about Amy:
Raised in San Dimas California, Amy has been singing since the age of three. Mother of 4, she finally lived out her dream that has always been rooted in country music. While in Nashville, Amy caught the attention of many industry professionals for her powerful vocals and passion for supporting our troops. Amy was featured in the July 09 issue of Country Weekly Magazine as well as the Sept 09 cover story for Nashville Music Guide. Her contagious spirit and her passion resonate to all who hear her. She has overcome tremendous circumstances and obstacles and now uses that to bring hope and encouragement through her music. Amy’s Patriotism shines through in her known traditional version of the National Anthem. In 2011 Amy was chosen to perform the National Anthem at Dodger Stadium for the 10 year anniversary of 9/11. Amy performed at Dodger Stadium at the request of the United States Army, Los Angeles Recruiting Battalion.
Since 2008, Amy has opened for many country music greats including; Trace Adkins, Clint Black, Charlie Daniels, Little Texas, Hal Katchum, Phil Vassar, Josh Gracin and others. Amy’s single “Coming Home” written by Dave Adams and produced by Paul McKenna is a celebration song for our heroes. Amy was officially endorsed by the American Veterans (AMVETS) Service Foundation for California from 2009 through 2011. At the beginning of 2010 Amy decided to set aside touring and dedicate her musical talents completely to the Veterans and Troops for all her performances. Amy’s oldest son, Ryan Scruggs, stepped into lead guitar in 2011 and shared the stage and dream with her by performing alongside her. Ryan is also credited with writing much of their new music. After years of life changing work behind her, Amy took a break from touring full time and she reentered the business world. Amy now resides in San Diego, CA and performs upon request at events honoring our veterans and heroes, while continuing to appear for speaking engagements. She continues outreach to the veteran community and women’s and children’s organizations while enjoying her position as Business Development Manager for New American Funding of San Diego. Amy continues to use her life experiences as humorous stories to help encourage people to have a healthy, positive perspective for daily life and its many challenges.
